It's been awhile since I read a thriller/mystery novel. This one had all the prerequisite twists and turns and even a bit of noir feel to it. As with most translated texts, some aspects came across strange, such as the characters overwhelming sense to be "friends" and using the British "gaol" instead of "jail". Took me a while to catch on to the latter.

Read the final 400 pages in a long weekend which isn't typical for me. Definitely had me engrossed for a few nights. I'm not sure if I'll read the others in the trilogy, but glad we decided to read this for book club as it forced me out of my typical reading habits.
